Levee is a hood with long scarf tails worked in a pretty, easy to work, and not too open lacy stitch pattern with garter stitch trims. The hood is substantial enough to provide warmth, but light enough to not add a lot of bulk at the back of your neck when worn down. As much as I love hats, I get crazy “hat head” instantly, so once I put one on it has to stay on. But with a hood I can keep keep warm without plastering my bangs to my forehead!
The sample shown was knit in Quince & Co. Lark.
